Atlanta Braves...we'd be the only team with that name within the city limits, plus we already have all the swag.
The infrastructure of that area, and d'town in general, cannot handle the traffic a SB would bring, even with a shiny, new stadium. Our city transit is trying, but its by no means sufficient enough to handle the high traffic a SB would bring. It would be chaos d'town.
Spend the money on creating fan & player loyalty. That is what brings in the money. Invest at the bottom, add some time, and the rewards will be much greater than a one-day return. It might even strengthen your city, who knew?
This city has the worst fan-bases I have ever seen in professional sports. Invest in making this a better sports town. The SB will come, it will just require some patience.
I appreciate what Arthur Blank has done for Atlanta so far, but if he just has to have a new stadium, please leave and go ruin some other city.
Make it heavy rail and extend it North from Lindbergh up I-75 while you are at it.
